User groups are great way to tap into local talent. The attendees are usually top IT candidates because they are there to further their career by staying up to date on industry trends.
A local JavaEE Architecture and Systems Design Consultant, David Seddon, presented on Java Micro Fr
ameworks. He covered all the technologies used with Java and answered questions for more junior Java users that attended.
“The best part of the event was being able to connect with the Java developers on a personal level. The venue that we chose encouraged conversation. The speaker could not have been a better fit, his presentation opened a dialogue for us to cover what development skills employers are currently searching for. Having valuable IT market insight is a game changer and a major selling point to IT professionals.”
Hosting local user groups gives us the ability to combine our staffing expertise with a unique view on the current IT labor market.
Last month the Raleigh team sponsored the annual Code Camp, a daylong event that promotes skills development and learning among coding peers.
The event brings developers from all over the US to discuss programming languages, platforms and coding principles.
Denise Jones, Raleigh Business Unit Leader, shares her view on the event, “The Raleigh Code Camp is a unique setting for us, instead of the traditional job fair. This event allows us to get personal with tech pros that are great at their craft. Our approach is to help them take their career to the next level by sharing tech market trends and key job seeker advice.”
Many of our offices sponsor code camps and find them successful – top level techies attend to hear more about trends in the current IT industry and our recruiters and account managers assist them in achieving their career goals by matching them to the right role.

Curtis Portingale, Senior Construction & Property Consultant, share his success with networking at big events. “Always have your business cards or company flyers on hand. Give them something to remember you by. Make sure to strike up a conversation that provides them with useful tips. They are most likely to remember someone who listens to them, rather than someone who is busy selling the whole time. Hear their needs and offer your support.”
The tournament also served as fundraiser for the ABC Scholarship Foundation which provides support for those looking to advance in construction.
The Texas crew was able to connect with hundreds of construction professionals as they circled the course.
